01 · Love Never Dies, Part 1 (edit)

Forever in your arms, you said, forever in my heart
My love for you will make us both climb higher
Driven by the power that is burning in our hearts
You know my faith in you will keep us together

Forever in your arms you said, forever in my heart
My love for you will make us both climb higher
I sense your presence in this room, I feel that you are near
You hold me close and whisper, "Love is forever"

Love is forever…
Love never dies…

02 · Mourn

Lost in the depths, the depths of your eyes
I couldn't resist, why should I?
I want to relax, I want to feel free
I want to be you, you want to be me

I look at you, I look at your face
Reach for my hand, just in case
Forever with you, you mourn, I can see
Now I am you, do you want to be me?

Why are you always hiding?
Why are you always mourning?

03 · Non-Stop Violence

Come close, step inside
Radiance from the dying world
Contagious and careless
You're spreading your disease among us
Warm sweat, no regret
All you see is the TV set
While people around you
Are dying like flies

Non-stop violence, they feed us cascades
Of non-believers dying in the sand
Feeding us with violence, we face the fall of man
Believe me, and catch me if you can

Catch me if you can!

Come close, step inside
Radiance from the dying world
Contagious and careless
You're spreading your disease among us
White noise in your ears
Your eyes look like monitors
But what you need is silence
And a positive vibe

Not your TV!

Non-stop violence, they feed us cascades
Of non-believers dying in the sand
Feeding us with violence, we face the fall of man
Believe me, and catch me if you can

Catch me if you can…

So I took shelter in tomorrow
Tomorrow will bring a brand new day
Think I make it by tomorrow
Think I need more sleep today

Lets play for keeps again tomorrow
I need a pill to stay awake
I guess I'll always hate tomorrow
Until it's far away… away…

04 · 25 Cromwell St.

Lights out
Forever in darkness
The sadness
You're insane

Inside number twenty-five
You did commit suicide
You killed them all
Then you killed yourself

They think that you're alive
But you know that they are wrong
You left your body in a prison cell
Before you went to Hell
They think that you're alive
But you know that they are wrong
You left your body in a prison cell
Before you went to…

05 · Rebel

For me it's very important to see… Jesus walked into my house

For me it's very important to see, Christ not as this sort of like mythical Santa Claus type figure, but rather a communistic anarchic intense person that walked around 2000 years ago. This homeless guy who was basically ridiculed and ultimately crucified by the leaders of his time. The things that he taught and the messages that he preached were, even by today's standards, extremely radical.

06 · Deep Red

Deep red is blurring my eyes
I'll wait in the closet until tonight
I want you to explain your feelings for me
The blade on your skin is what matters to me
I will wait for you to scream and shout
But you open your mouth, the blood runs out…

The knife cuts through her skin
And your heart starts beating faster
You feel the pressure within
As you look into her eyes…

07 · Nearer

You are reaching your goals
But I'm still trapped inside of mine
Before the break of day
You will be gone and far away

In solitude
With no place to run or hide
I hear my own mind cry
And I fall just to see you rise

And I will go down on my knees
And pray the best that I can
I want you to be near…
And I will go down on my knees
And try to make you understand
My deepest fear

With pain in my heart
I will travel on my own
To that place inside
Where I can be alone

In solitude
With no place to run or hide
Again I hear this voice cry out
And I fall just to see you rise

And I will go down on my knees
And pray the best that I can
I want you to be near…
And I will go down on my knees
And try to make you understand
My deepest fear

In solitude
With no place to run or hide
I hear my own mind cry
And I fall just to see you rise

And I will go down on my knees
And pray the best that I can
I want you to be near…
And I will go down on my knees
And try to make you understand
My deepest fear

08 · Half Asleep

I'm half asleep again
The shell is sleeping, my soul is not
I feel confused, too many thoughts
I fear, I fear temptation
Weird thoughts inside my mind
Brute thoughts are tempting me
I want to do what I know is wrong with my fear
I fear temptation

Take me away, fill me with desire
Teach me how to live a life without regret
Take me away, fill me with desire
Teach me how to live a life without regret

I'm half asleep again
The shell is sleeping, my soul is not
I'm still confused, too many thoughts
I fear, I fear temptation
Something's got a grip on my mind
Causing me to forget about you
Makes me feel that I had to choose
And I need you
I fear temptation

Take me away, fill me with desire
Teach me how to live a life without regret
Take me away, fill me with desire
Teach me how to live a life without regret

09 · Love Never Dies, Part 2

Don't leave me, don't go away
Stay beside me for another day
My love for you will never die

Don't leave me, don't go away
Stay near me for one more day
You know my love will never die

I would rather be
In your arms tonight
Finally to close my eyes
And you to hold me tight

I will drown again
In your arms tonight
Finally to close my eyes
Forever in your arms
